The UP BOX builds on the rock-solid performance of the UP Plus 2 and the industry leading, price/performance value of the UP mini, by adding the feature that many users have been waiting for, Larger Build Volume, 255x205x205mm, or 10x8x8inch (WxHxD) while increasing the print resolution to a super-fine 0.1mm and accelerating printing speed up to 30% faster than the UP Plus 2.

In addition to finer print resolution and printing efficiency, UP BOX boasts three innovative “New” features:

         Fully automated platform leveling with automatic calibration with no human intervention required, providing a seamless 3D printing experience
         Enclosure with Air Filtration System that keeps your environment green by minimizing operational noise and containing any fumes that may result from the printing process
         Light-Pulse functional LED, mood-lighting that gives your UP BOX heartbeat by displaying on-going print-status

“New” UP features are fully integrated with proven UP standards like UP Software with Smart Support, Fully-Heated Build Platform for consistent, warp-free ABS printing and UP's industry-leading 1-Year Limited Warranty and Service.

“Our goal is to be the most reliable provider of 3D technologies and solutions to our customers around the world.” said Tiertime's General Manager, Mr. Guo Ge, “The UP BOX is proof that we meet the needs of professional users and demonstrate Tiertime's continuing leadership in 3D technology”.

This ensures droop-free output by allowing difficult and complex designs to be printed with ease. In addition, the UP software features a user-friendly interface and comprehensive printing functions which new users and fans of the UP series will find easy to operate.

Black Friday Sale, 2013
Friday, 22 November 2013 11:12

Dear 3D Printing fans,

Holiday season is coming again. Are you ready for the Tiertime Annual Black Friday Sale? It will a door buster deal with mysteries.

Here are the details:

1. Time: Nov. 29, 2013, Friday, Beijing Time.

2. 10 units of new UP PLUS 2 with price tag at $799.

4. The first 5 out of the 10 units will be on sale at 10:00am sharp Beijing time, and the remaining 5 units will be available at 16:00pm sharp Beijing time.

Then, what mysteries...

All 10 units will have different look from normal UP PLUS 2, and each one of them is not the same. The 10 lucky buyers do not have the option to choose among the 10 machines before they make the purchase, and they can only see the machine after it is delivered to their doorstep.

Sounds like fun? For me, I could not stop my urge to see the machines. Finally I got a chance to sneak in to our top-secret shipping department, during the time when people work there went out for lunch. I took a picture of two machines left uncovered on the desk. Well, they look really different, and they are cool!

However, I could not find any trace of rest of the machines. I heard they have been stored in a secret location, from which they will be shipped out directly to those lucky buyers.

On behalf of all the inquisitive people, who would like to know how these 10 limited edition UP PLUS 2 looks, I request all the 10 lucky buyers, once receive their machines, post images of her/his UP PLUS 2 in pp3dp.com forum, and tell all the Uppers if s/he likes the way it looks.

Well, that is all the detail of 2013 UP PLUS 2 Black Friday SALE.

Up Plus 2 Named “Best in Class: Just Hit Print” by MAKE Editors
MAKE Reviews 23 Personal 3D Printers in 2014 Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing

Beijing, November 8, 2013 — MAKE magazine, leader of the maker movement and producer of the popular Maker Faire events, once again developed test scripts and benchmarks to run the current field of 3D printers through their paces to create the Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing 2014.  MAKE’s

team of 3D testers has awarded Up Plus 2 “Best in Class: Just Hit Print.”  According to the MAKE 3D printer team, “[The] Automatic platform leveling takes this trusty printer to the next level.” The Up Plus 2 priced as tested is $1,649.

“We are very excited to have been ranked UP Plus 2’s top 3D printer this year, following last year’s success, and to have our innovations in 3D printing recognized by experts in the industry is a great honor”, says Mr. Allen Guo, President of Tiertime Corporation. “The consumer market for 3D printing is our primary target. We will continue to invest in innovations and strive to deliver the most user-friendly printers for the mass market.”

A team of fifteen recognized experts in the 3D printing field, and team leader Anna Kaziunas France, MAKE’s digital fabrication editor, put the printers through a battery of rigorous tests, to create side-by-side comparisons of product attributes in order to identify the top performers. The buyers guide will be available on newsstands across the country on November 12.

“This was an incredible effort by every one on our team of testers who represented a great cross-section of 3D printing gurus, from engineers to designers and artists to technology and 3D printing instructors,” said France.

MAKE published the first-ever guide to personal 3D printers last year to explain the relatively new phenomenon of personal 3D printing, and to help early buyers make smart choices. The inaugural guide featured 16 personal 3D printers on the market, with the lowest priced one around $500.

New tricks with UP software v2.0
Wednesday, 24 July 2013 09:13

UP software v2.0 is released today, and here are some major features that you may interest in.

1. When printer is extruding or withdrawing filament, platform will move 30mm lower to avoid possible filament mess around nozzle.

2. Software can automatically figure out if 'unsolid' option is necessary.

3. Added "surface printing" option to enable single layer printing. Surface printing is not recommended for models with bottom or models require inner fill structure, otherwise no bottom or top is printed.

4. Added the feature that allows pause at a specific height during a print. This feature is very useful if you want to change color for a specific design.

Pause print at a specific height does not include the height of the raft. For instance, if your print is 0.2mm Z resolution with a pause at 5mm, the pause will occur at the height of 5mm of the actual model from the model bottom.

  • Note: Print can’t be paused for the first four layers.
  • Note: Pause print may not be precise as the height you specified, because the slicing layer thickness may not reach the exact height.

5. Added .UPP format, a new UP project file format, in which print parameters are saved. When opening an UPP file, print parameters set with the model previously will be loaded automatically for immediate printing. This feature will make your life easier for multiple prints with various parameter settings.

  • Note: Unsolid model option and time setting for platform heating after model is complete are not saved in .UPP file.

6. Data transmission boosted from PC to UP Plus 2 3D printer, taking advantage of high speed CPU. (only for UP Plus 2).

7. Automatic Platform leveling calibration & Automatic platform height calibration (UP Plus 2 only).

8. For more details information of this upgrade, please see the software download page.
